Game Day Recon #58 - Canucks @ Wild
The Canucks lost a special teams battle last night and it cost them the game. They didnt force enough turnovers and they let the Blues basically have the offensive zone. And Luongo giftwrapped a goal for Alex Steen with an absolutely bone-headed decision. All around it was a disappointing effort.
So how do they get back on track? They go to the Twin Cities to take on the Wild. Yikes.

Game Day Recon #57 - Canucks @ Blues
The last time that Roberto Luongo Luongo lost a game in regulation, he lost to the St. Louis. That was on Decemeber 5th. 70 days ago. Now, Luongo and the Canucks have a couple of dragons to slay in the next two days, facing the Blues and the Minnesota Wild tonight and tomorrow respectively.
Will tonight see Luongo exact some revenge on his last regulation loss? And can he carry that on to tomorrow?

That was a great hockey game. Maybe it’s because I’ve been watching bottom-feeder hockey all season, but it was a nice change to watch a pretty good team play a really good team. As the commentators noted time and again, it felt like a playoff game.
